Caterpillar Marine Expands Portfolio of CAT Reman Products Offerings

New Orleans, Louisiana – Caterpillar is pleased to announce an updated portfolio of remanufactured short blocks, long blocks and engines now available for the Marine industry. Ranging from 300 to 700 bhp, Cat® Reman engines offer maximum value by providing improved productivity and efficiency at a fraction of the cost of new, while reducing impact on the environment.

As the world’s leading remanufacturer of diesel engines, Caterpillar employs state of the art techniques, advanced remanufacturing processes, and genuine Cat parts to return each engine to same as new specifications. “Remanufacturing is more than rebuilding,” said David Holt, marine industry specialist for Caterpillar’s Global Aftermarket Marketing and Brand Division. “It’s returning engines and components to their original performance specifications and latest engineering changes using salvage technologies, strict reuse guidelines, advanced manufacturing systems and unequaled quality control.” Restoring original performance is possible since new Cat engines and engine components are built to be remanufactured for a second life.

“Giving our customers the option of dropping in a new Cat Reman engine can save not only save money but also time with the convenience of installation,” said Holt. “Cat Reman is also good for the environment.” Caterpillar’s remanufacturing makes sustainable progress possible every day by reducing waste, lowering greenhouse gas emissions and minimizing the need for raw materials to produce new parts. Cat Reman products are backed by the applicable Cat parts or new engine warranty and by the highly trained team of experts in the worldwide Cat Dealer network.

Cat Reman engines can get you back on the waters with same as new performance and product quality at a fraction of new price. To learn more and meet Reman experts, contact your local Cat dealer or stop by the Caterpillar exhibit #2701 at the 2017 International Workboat Show to be held November 29 – December 1 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
